Consensus: The use of special effects diminishes some of Chan's appeal in this disposable picture.

Repeatedly falls back on poorly staged, choppily edited (and gunplay-heavy) fight scenes between Chan and a gloomy, power-mad villain.

Makes you long for Tucker -- and for Jackie Chan to fly without digital wings.

Probably the worst Jackie Chan vehicle to come around in his career...

This outing, Jackie doesn't bring much humor or personality to his role.

With smooth, energetic direction by Gordon Chan and a love interest in the beautiful Claire Forlani, The Medallion shapes up as one of Jackie Chan's best American films.

I do love Jackie Chan, but this movie was not as good as I expected to be.
Mediocre Jackie Chan Stunt Movie. Mildly Entertaining
